11 IN OLD MISSOURI IXTEHESTIXG BEMIXISCEXCES COLOXEL D. C. ALLE.W OP HAS SOME VALUABLE RELICS OXE IS THE THIRTT-SECOXD SOM BER OP "MISSOUHI GAZETTE." Veteran Lawyer of Liberty Tells of the Early Settlera of Jackson and Clay Counties and Re late Some Entertain, lnssr Anecdotes. The early history of Missouri Is largely like that of almost every other state, made up of traditions handed down by word of mouth and, by tfiejecollectlons and person al remlnlr.cen.cea .ofthe earliest settlers. Probably- there Is no better posted man on this hlstfiry" alive to-day; 'than Colonel De Witt C.Alleiv of Liberty, 3Io.r who is a perfect encyclopedia;-of -.knowledge upon much -thatrhas-happened-ln thls'-territory since It" -was' first peopled "by the whites, ana" who Fas nil the facts connected with the counties of Clay andVackson since be fore they were counties at all up to the present'day; That Colonel Allen Is a veritable "sage among the sages," was shown a few nights ago when, he delivered an address before the Early Settlers and Historical Society, of Missouri, upon "Early Days of Mis souri, More Particularly of Clay and Jack son Counties' Thesociety, as its name im pliesx numbers among Its members many of the oldest residents of the counties named, and of the state, yet there they sat- and listened to oldtlma recollections and reminiscences the memory of which-! was with them dim and Indistinct, or which had been forgotten altogether. A still more significant fact was that Colonel Allen was able to tell several of those present of Incidents closely connected with their own families or Intimate friends, of which they had no previous knowledge. In addition to possessing a marvelous memory Colonel Allen Is Indebted to his mother for much of the Interesting data which he possesses. From her he Inherits a marked taste for the collection of family , traditions and folklore. It thus happens that his knowledira fot li.irU fnf- hiwnmi his personal ken to things which -hap- icucu lhtiujo jus- iime, Dut we story or which ha has many times heard his mother repeat, unce told a thing, he Is sufficient ly Interested to verify it as far as pos sible and lie never forgets. In addition to his recollections. Colonel Allen has an almost priceless collection of old papers, mementoes and relics around which aro woven the memories and ro mance of a generation long since dead and burled. Very quaint In themselves are some of these relics, but their principal value lies in their historical value and as sociations. Of great interest to all Mlssourians Is a copy of the third number of the lirst vol ume of the Missouri Gazette (now the St. Louis Republic) dated July 26, 1S0S. It was a miniature publication of only four pages, each eight by twelve Inches, but the tj pographlcal work In it Is almost per fect. It contains only one display adver tisement and the editorials and personals with which its few columns are filled have the quaint tone of a by-gone age. Another copy of the Missouri Gazette bears the date August 1C, 181", and is a rather more pretentious publication than the prior copy. Then comes a copy of the St. Louis Knquirer. for May 20, ISO, and one of the Upper Missouri Knquirer (pub lished at Liberty), dated January 23, 1S34. Though not possessing the same local Interest, Colonel Allen has other valuable newspaper relics In an Eastern publication "of the seventeenth century. Another Is the American Republic, for December 27, lHL published at Frankfort, Ky., and the "Western Monitor, published at Lexington, Ky., and dated April 11, 1B23. Probably the best preserved of all, how ever. Is a copy of the Western Star, dated February 5, 1SU, and printed at Liberty, Mo. Another valuable possession of Colonel Allen's collection Is the first bound volume ever brought within the present confines of Kansas City, it is enuuea ine uimuiui an Magazine and Mlscellaney," published In Philadelphia in 1790. Its history is well authenticated. Jt was originally in the possession of a Mr. Ely, of the firm of Curtis & Ely, who. In 1822 established a trading post somewhere on the present site of Kansas City, and who were the original white settlers in this locality. It was the only bound volume in Mr. Ely's library and was presented by him to Colo nel Allen's father. There are two excel lent old wood cuts in the book, one show ing Niagara Falls as they appeared In 1790. and the other an Illustration of the public buildings of Philadelphia in the same year. One of these buildings Is Carpenter's hall. In which met the first general congress of . the United States. Other relics are a snuff box which Colo nel Allen's father brought to Clay county In 1S, -a letter dated August G. 1821. and nddressed by Brigadier General Stephen Trigg to Major Shuball Allen, requesting the latter to be present at an election of officers for the militia, to be held in Boone county, and Tquetlng him to vote for the writer for the position of major genpral. Another Is a map of this tate. published in 1830, prior to the Piatt purchase, showing the county divisions of thati date. Only three countless-Howard, Clay and St. Louis have the Boundaries, as-then shown, still unchanged. . . " " Colonel Allen's Reminiscences. "The first settlement of J,apkson county," said ColoneljAHen, "began In 1S0S at old Fort Osage, now Sibley.-The Indian title to Jackson county was extinguished In 1803, and in Clay county In 1815. Clay was made a county In, 1822. and-Jacks'on In 1S20. The names given to e3ch and t6 the principal town of each Illustrate, well how public opinion changed in the short- time between their respective establishment. Jackson and Independence were so called to offset Clay and Liberty. "In those days the population was a most mixed one, but until 1S4S there was neer the slightest prejudice against any man an account of the part or the country from which he originally -came. The men were all of a hardy, honest, sincere type; In dustrious and self-reliant and with not a single characteristicthat goes to form the make-up of the typical border rufllan or desperado. They were brave men for iirnr fnoprt the danzers and perils ot an unknown and hostile country almost hourly but the common dangers bound them to gether in the strongest at fraternal ties. They were good and true men In the high est sense of the word. "These earliest settlers were followed by another type, more cultured perhaps and equally, but not more,- honest men. A large portion were from Kentucky and Virginia and quite a number from Mary land, North and South Carolina and Ten nessee. The remainder w ere about equally distributed among the other Eastern States. . . ....

I challenge anyone to find any record or evidence to the contrary or even to pro duce any allegation to the opposite prior to the invasion of Kansas. It was that raid alone that was responsible for the dis repute Into which Missouri subsequently fell In the East and the stories which were afterward current., of theiblood thlrstiness and desperate nature, of Mls sourians were manufactured almos alto gether out of whole cloth and wereclrcu lated for political xeasons. "There were settlers in Clay county In 1819 and ouite a number In 1820. The' coun ty records for 1S24 speak of a-' road running-! due nortn to connect wiin tne council Bluffs road and of another from Liberty to the mouth of the Kaw. Curtis & Ely, a firm of traders, established a post some where on the site of what-is now Kansas City In 1S22, but subsequently moved to Liberty, where they conducted a general store. "Until the discovery of gold In California and the establishment of settlements in that state and In Oregon, the western tinniprs nf Missouri were the limits of ad vancing civilization.. It was the 'Jumping, off place as it were, ana irora iiere iu iue Pacific coast was an unbroken wilderness. Of course the population of Clay and Jackson counties were practically sequest ered communities, but the state militia was well organized, largely owing. I suppose. to the then recent war of 1S12, and law and order were generally observed. "In the early days educational facilities were somewhat limited but they were much more complete than would be naturally supposed. The teachers were of a consid erably higher class than the average coun try school teacher of to-day. For in stance, my own first teacher, Tobias Lord Emerv. was a graduate of Bowden col lege. While the curriculum taugh was per haps narrow. It was eminently thorough. "Until steamboat .navigation began it was, of course, Impos3ibleto secure ma chinery for the development of manufact uring resources, but this fact did not re sult in any privations or Indeed many de privations. "While people were thrown to a great extent upon their own resources, almost every family numbered among Its members some one who could make the articles of common use or ordinary necessity. Many a fam ily could make as good shoes as a country shoemaker now turns out. Flour for the entire country was made at the Blue mills, located at the crossing of the Lexington road over the Blue river, on the road from Independence to Lexing ton. These mills were established more than sixty years ago and many old settlers have told me that the flour manufactured there was truly superior than that turned Hit-by-many more-modern plants - - "In olden times this state was a land of Immense plenty.- Never was there a peo ple that had so great a period or peace nn1 ronnee ns did this rjeoDle from 1812 until the outbreak oMhe civil war. Game and fish abounded in such quantities that a man would kill a turkey and use only the breast or shoot a deer and take only the loins. My mother often told me that the house In which she lived, when Just married, was literally burled beneath wild roses. "Fifty or sixty years ago wine of a purity, richness and quality that would put to shame the contents of the best cellars of to-day could be obtained by anyone. At the steamboat landing one could buy cigars by the handful as dark and velvety as night and of an aroma that an angel need not fear to inhale for G cents each. Coffee was 12 to 15 cents a pound and sugar so cheap that I fear to state the price at which it was sold. "We had some luxuries in those days, you . may rest assured. . , , "When the Mexican war broke out of the 1.&8 men from-here who enlisted to fight -under General Stephen W. Crane, all except 300 United States dragoons were Mlssourians. They had no thought of pensions "then, and'indeed. It was over a year after they enlisted before they drew any pay. They furnished their own cloth ing and horses. "When they reached New Orleans after a year of marching and .fighting- they were in such a ragged condition that they could hardly appear with decency upon the streets. They had three weeks to w.Ut there for their pay, yet-arrangements wei e made with ready-made clothing firms, and every man secured a suit on credit. They were placed upon honor to discharge the bill when they got their money, and out of the entire number "not a single man failed to pay up promptly.- "A fact not generally known, but of which I am assured, hrthat there Is more Revolutionary blood in Clay county to-day. In proportion to population, than In any other county In the Union. This will 'be realized when It Is remembered that tht original settlers from Kentucky and Vir ginia were of the purest Revolutionary stock, and that the Tories never pene trated out as far as Missouri." HOW "THE WEIGHT Of Unman Being Varies Dally, Losing at Night and Gaining; in Day. From Knowledge. Common sense points out that we must vary in weight according to the amount of food we take in and the amount of mater ial that we lose. In the following churt the observations are arranged In such a way as, I think, "will make them clear. But perhaps the most 'convenient method Is to look at the summary diagram first, and this shows what can be represented in fig ures without much difficulty: Average, lb. oi. lb oz. 9-00 i. in. Before breakfast 15S a loelng 3 6 10.00 a. m Atter breaktast 157 4 gaining 1 12 12.00 noon Before luncheon 16 6 losing 0 It . 1.00 p. m. After luncheon 157 6 gainlog 1 0 o.w p. m. ueiore ainner iw li losing v iv 'CIS p. m. After dinner 158 It gaining 2 2 During night. By. these It will be seen that we lose three pounds six ounces between night and morning; that we gain one pound twelve ounces by breakfast, That we again lose about fourteen ounces before luncheon: that luncheon puts on an average of one pound; that we again lose during the aft ernoon aiv.average of ten ounces; but that an ordinary dinnerto,heol'hx persons adds two poundstwo' ounces -to their weight. What would be "the result of a big dinner? It is easier to imagine than to describe. And yet on more than one day there was a difference of two pounds eight ounces; but this is not very excessive, considering that a pint of fluid weighs about a pound. CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS GLAD. Rejoice nt the Dismissal of the Salt Acalnst Mrs. J2ddy for Slander.- F. B. Perrin, the Christian Science healer, was seen yesterday respecting the dismis sal of the suit against Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy by Mrs. Woodbury, who had sued Mrs. Eddy for slander about June 1, 1899. He said: "All Christian Scientists lnthis and oth er cities will be greatly rejoiced oer the withdrawal of this suit, on account of the high regard with which Mrs. Eddy Is held throughout this country, and in this citv especially will there be a great rejoicing. Personally, I cannot see where Mrs. Wood bury found any grounds whatever on which to base her claims to having been slandered. "All the remarks which were claimed to be slanderous by Mrs. Woodbury, and used by Mrs. Eddy, are found in the Bible, and were only quotations made by Mrs. Eddy, and while our sect felt there would be no finding against Mrs. Eddy, at the same time we did not expect so complete a victory. We all felt that the trial was almost a farce and that sooner or later Mrs. Woodbury would come to see the truth. In my estimation the trial is but another evidence of the Tefutatlon of false hood by the power of the truth." EMMA GOLDMAN AS:AN M. D. When She Retnrns to America She Will Practice Medicine In the "West. From the New York World. Emma Goldman, the woman anarchist, who has just gone to Europe to study med icine, presented a strong contrast in the two sides ot her character. In public she was a fire-eating revolutionist, uigtng the slaughter of the hated capitalist and ex tolling deeds of violence In all parts of the world. In private she was a model of the domestic virtues. .Her little flat in'East Sixteenth street was always neatly kept. Her husband's meals were prepared on time, and she was an angel of mercy to those In surrounding tenements less fortu nate, than herself. She studied medicine while a prisoner on Blackwell's island. She was employed there as an assistant In the hospital." She will return to this country when she has received her medical degree, and will take up the practice of her. profession In the West.

In the past nirie years grew worse, and two years ago was so poorly could hardly drag around. I consulted a Specialist, and he said I had ulceration, and that an operation would have to be performed. At last I wrote to Dr. Pierce, asking advice. I soon got a helpful answer, advising me to try his medicines, the ' Favorite Prescription,' ' Golden Medical Discovery,' and also his ' Pleasant Pellets.' I bought two bottles of the 'Favorite Prescription,' two of the 'Discover',' and two vials of the 'Pellets,' and I began taking 'Favorite Prescription' and the other medicines, as advised. When commencing I weighed 119 pounds, and after taking one bottle of each I was like a new woman. In one month I gained eight pounds. After taking two bottles of each of the medicines named, I began to look jlike a woman and not like a wasted skeleton.

"I was in bed nearly three months afterward, and was treated by three different physicians. Had nervous prostration, indigestion, and sinking spells, and suffered a great deal with my head. In fact, I can't tell all I did suffer. Came near having convulsions, when my husband sent for another doctor. Under his treatment I got so I could be tip most of the time and assist a little in the housework. I continued in this way for some time, suffering all .the time with my back and a misery low. down across me till I was induced by a friend to write to you for advice.

We all love a crowded gallery people coming, going, incidents, emotions, pas sions, evil as well as good, for there is nothing we cannot forgive humanity; and Hogarth's gallery teems with the life of tho eighteenth century; catches, as only great painters can, its most evanescent glances and records Its desperate efforts to amuse itself or -forget Itself- between -two eternities and though so true a hu morist could not be oblivious ot the kindly side of life or be without some gracious touches and affectionate portrayals, still, roughly speaking, the great historian of the eighteenth century In England afflrms the brutal view of it, its cruelty.
